Expert review of The Standard

One of the city's hottest new hotels with gobsmacking views.

This architectural marvel along the Hudson is arguably New York's most exciting hotel arrival in years with spectacular views from every room - the Statue of Liberty and the river stretching in one direction and the Empire State building and Midtown in the other.

Location: 

If you want to be at the heart of one of New York's most exciting, and up and coming, neighborhoods this is it. This is the burgeoning nightlife playground of the city and close to some of Manhattan’s best shopping and restaurant choices. Best of all it's literally right on top of the new High Line, an old abandoned train track that’s been reinvented as a beautifully landscaped elevated promenade through the neighborhood and one of the most exciting symbols of city reinvention.

Bedrooms: 

I stayed here recently and really liked the simple open plan layouts (though if you are traveling with your mum you might want to avoid one of the options with a shower in the center of the room) and comfy furniture - especially the plush beds where I spent much of my stay gazing out at the jaw-dropping panorama. And that's the thing, the views are so amazing here that you won't be looking around your room very much at all.

Public areas: 

Cheap and cheerful with brightly colored accents.

Eating and drinking: 

Love the hotel’s excellent adjacent restaurant, the Standard Grill, and the bar on the 18th floor that’s become the celeb hangout of the moment, though there is talk of making it a private club.

Leisure facilities: 

24 hour gym.

Service: 

Hit and miss. Sometimes the reception was very helpful but a couple of times simple requests like making a restaurant reservation weren't executed properly.
